John McCain's daughter defends Bristol Palin on blog
John McCain's daughter, who has been keeping a blog while she accompanies her father on the campaign trail, has written an entry defending Bristol palin, the pregnant 17 year old daughter of McCain's VP selection, Sarah Palin.
In a post on her blog, www.McCainBlogette.com, Miss McCain, 24, said she felt kinship with Miss Palin, the 17-year-old daughter of vice-Presidential candidate Sarah, adding: "It's a rough go being the son or daughter of a politician."
"I have not known Bristol Palin very long, but there is a certain kinship I feel to her as I do other political daughters, such as Chelsea Clinton, Jenna and Barbara Bush and Mary Cheney," she wrote, in a post titled "Daughters".
"You can't fully understand it unless you have lived it. So, I just wanted to let it be known that I support Bristol and the entire Palin family."
Miss McCain goes on to liken Miss Palin's situation to a moment that "single-handedly changed my life" - when, during the 2000 presidential campaign, a reporter asked her father whether he would tell Meghan, who was then 14, that she could not have an abortion if she became pregnant.
